Added Canon Log 3 to Canon Log settings, a log gamma curve that possesses largely the same characteristics with Canon Log 1 but with a wider dynamic range. It is also found in our professional line of cameras, the Cinema EOS Series, allowing easier post-production camera matching work between the...

Hmmm, I'm in the disappointed camp with the R6 firmware release, alas I can see the reasoning behind pushing the R5 with its enhancements. The only thing I like the look of is number 4.
4. Fixes a phenomenon, in rare cases where the camera does not function normally when the drive mode is set to “High-speed continuous shooting” to shoot still images continuously.
Does this mean that I can now shoot high speed + with my 100-400 ii without losing the subject?

Yep, as expected.
No C-Log 3 for the R6 as I suspected.
It will remain the hybrid with the crappiest DR.

Guess CR3 isn't reliable at all.
could be product / tier differentiation or horsepower too.. R5 might have more capability to handle clog3? anyone know?

Aah, I was hoping for 4k raw via HDMI out for my R5...
maybe in another life :-D

Anyway, Clog 3 sounds interesting. And FHD120fps is certainly welcomed, if it doesnt overheat. (4k120 is by far the most unreliable mode for me and overheats after 4-5 minutes...). A higher framerate in FHD would have been awesome though. Processing power should be available..
But nice to see, that Canon actualy adds new features in a camera.

Or, maybe it is the sensor itself...

Gordon mentioned CLOG 3 for the R6 and the 1DX Mark III in a later firmware. Still no mention of decoupling the IBIS from lens stabilization.


Yeah, just another rumor.
Will possibly hear more info in another 6 months.

By that time R5c will be announced and the Sony A7IV will be out. Dammit. I really wanted to go Canon, like this weekend. So disappointed I bought into the CR3 rating.

The video review says R6 will get c-log 3 at a later date.

First off that is simply another rumor from a single youtuber. Nothing written in stone.

Second, this was CR3 which is basically fact.
"I can count the number of times this source has been wrong on one finger". Well, seems like this time it was a big
middle finger.

Third, later date could mean 2 months from now, 4 months from now, 6 months from now, or not at all. Not gonna hold my breath with the A7IV on the horizon, and who knows what else.

I do feel really bad for those who have an R6 or 1DX-3 and truly bought the rumor of it coming in this FW update.

surprised no one is mentioning the ability to save your settings to a card to put in other cameras... that was asked a few times :) but not mentioned in the canon site, but shown by Gordon's video

nm mentions it on the canon usa one at least

"
8. Adds [Save/load cam settings on card] to the Function settings tab of the menu.
This allows you to save the camera settings to a card, or load a saved file and restore the camera to the settings you saved to a card."
